Classic European Gold
Goldmart.com carries a wide selection of Pre-1933 European Gold Coins for those collectors who are seeking to diversify their precious metals holdings as well as providing extra protection against the possibility of seizure by any entity, as the US government attempted to do in 1933. They were exempt from seizure then, and remain so today.
Today, however, the numismatic value of these pre-1933 Classic European Gold Coins is often outweighed by their gold content. For example, the 1930 Danish Gold 20 Kroner contains 0.2592 oz. of .900 fine gold, and is typically priced as bullion, notwithstanding its value as a collectors’ item. Other Classic European Gold Coins fitting this description include the British Sovereign, French Rooster, Swiss Helvetia, and Austrian Ducat.
The 1930 Danish Gold 20 Kroner coin is, of course, only one of the thousands of Pre-1933 European Gold Coins, each of which was unique as to its size, weight, and purity, determined by its make, denomination, and country of origin.
Pre-1933 European Gold Coins are a popular means of owning gold because their often-fractional denominations (usually one-fifth to one-quarter ounce) would probably allow them to be easily traded for goods and services.
Goldmart.com is pleased to offer Pre-1933 European Gold Coins for delivery to customers throughout the United States and Canada.
